[Update #2]: Hogwarts Legacy devs have now detailed the PC system requirements and their expected performance.

[Update]: It took a while, but we finally have a release date! Hogwarts Legacy will be launching on February 10, 2023 for PC, PlayStation and Xbox, while the Switch version will most likely be coming at a later date.

If you were hoping to get your hands on Avalanche's Hogwarts Legacy action-RPG at some point this year, I'm afraid I bring some bad news. According to the latest announcement, Hogwarts Legacy has now been pinned for a 2022 release date on both PC and consoles, with no specific date given just yet.

"We would like to thank fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label," reads the very brief update. "Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us so we are giving the game the time it needs."

I would love to tell you more, especially about the gameplay itself, but I'm afraid that's pretty much everything that has arrived with this update. Once more information becomes available, ideally alongside a lengthier gameplay preview, I'll make sure to let you know.

Until then, however, I'll leave you with the original reveal trailer, just in case you haven't seen it yet. Enjoy!
